(no author) log messages even though using authenticated access

We noticed recently that our log messages are showing (no author) even
though we are using authenticated access. We are using Apache as the
front end to our repository,
and I've read the FAQ entry and the chapter in the SVN book on Apache
configuration, I believe our configuration is such that for the folder
the user is commiting to,
they need user authenticated access, and thus the log messages should be
named by user.

Our Apache config:

  ## Subversion repo access
   <Location /repos>
        DAV svn
        SVNPath /var/subversion_repository
        ## Necessary for WebDAV clients that have mounted the repo as
        ## a filesystem
        SVNAutoversioning on

        ## Access control policy
        AuthzSVNAccessFile conf/svn_authz
        ## Try anon first, resort to real auth if necessary
        Satisfy Any
        Require valid-user
        AuthType Basic
        AuthName "subversion repository"
        AuthUserFile conf/svn_htpasswd

svn_authz file:
admins = dek
testproject-developers = dek, davidr

* = r
@admins = rw

* =
@testproject-developers = rw

Now, the user is checking out a subpath of the repository root:

svn co https://svnserver/repos/testproject

and then commiting some changes, and it shows up as '(no author)'.
However, from my understand of the configuration above,
the user would have to authenticate to commit to testproject, thus a
user name should be available. I've confirmed that by
visitng the repository URL in a browser, I am indeed challenged for
username and password, confirming that read and write access
are restricted to users n the testproject-developers group.

Am I misunderstanding the config file? Misconfiguring apache?
subversion bug?
